Video: A Forward Pass Prevents Ulster From Scoring A Spectacular Try

Ulster are putting the fallen French giants to the sword. After dismantling Toulouse 38-0 in Ravenhill last week, the northerners are playing some sublime rugby in the south of France this week.

Down to 14 men after Paddy Jackson was sin-binned for a deliberate knock on, Ulster pounced on a mistake from the French to spark a wonderful counter attack. The play involved a nice interplay between Andrew Trimble and full-back Louis Ludik, before the support play from Ulster allowed them to play across the pitch and capitalise on lazy Toulouse defending to put Rory Scholes in for the score.

The only thing that could have spoiled the try was the reason it was disallowed, with JP Doyle correctly identifying a forward pass from Ludik to Trimble back in Ulster's own half:

It's a shame, but it's great to see an Irish team playing such exciting rugby.
